This evening we will be departing from our Latin American focus, to screen Of Gods and Men, a French film set in Algeria.
“Inspired by true events, this powerful and affecting film tells the story of a group of Cistercian monks living in the remote mountains of North Africa.
When an Islamic fundamentalist group massacres a team of foreign workers, fear sweeps though the region and the brothers are faced with abandoning their monastery and the community who depend on them, or make the courageous decision to stay.
Building to an extraordinarily moving climax, this beautifully directed, immaculately performed and award-winning drama has been acclaimed as a masterpiece.”
2010. In French and Arabic, with English subtitles. Running time 122 mins.
